Gibson Memphis Announces the B.B. King “Lucille” Signature Guitar
Few would dispute that B.B. King’s “Lucille” ranks among the most iconic and instantly recognizable artist guitars of all-time.
Marking the instrument’s 65th birthday, Gibson Memphis is proud to announce the B.B. King Signature Lucille, a lovingly crafted take on King’s legendary ES-355 tricked out to meet the tastes of the King of the Blues himself.
Features of the classic semi-acoustic include King’s preferred “no f-hole” design, a 490R humbucker in the neck and 490T in the bridge, and a TP6 Fine Tune Stop Bar tailpiece—all dressed in a high-gloss ebony finish with gold hardware. Scripted in mother-of-pearl on the headstock is the name, “Lucille,” with the gold-engraved phrase “65 Years” inscribed on the truss-rod cover.
A plush-lined hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity round out this very special offering. To learn more about the B.B. King “Lucille” Signature guitar click here.
